Book Description

"They call me 'Cornbread' because that's what my husband was eatin' when I shot him in the face..."

Thus begins the debut story from 24-year-old author Sean Hammer. Told in the odd and unforgettable voice of its protagonist, "Cornbread" is the tale of a matricidal Arkansas woman bringing about the final days of her marriage. At turns darkly comical and deeply tragic, it's a story that lingers long after it's finished, like the smell of fresh baked cornbread or discharged gunpowder...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, powerful monologue 3 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Cornbread is the powerful and moving tale of a murder, as told by a put-upon wife from the prison cell where she is serving out her sentence for shooting her bullying pig of a husband to death. Sean hammer writes with a real sense of place, and the narrator's voice is poignant and articulate in her own way. The ending is sudden, but aren't all endings in this kind of marriage ? And it's true to the narrator's painfully honest black and white view of things. An excellent piece of work, which would make a great one woman monologue play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this quick read 27 May 2014

Very well written. Don't normally buy singles but the title intrigued me. Sad and insightful look at a poor marriage - however loved the writing, especially the end - what does society do about someone who they believe is a victim but the victim doesn't agree, they just wanted a solution! Worth a read!

4.0 out of 5 stars First Person POV 27 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An intriguing little story that was well written with good tempo. Some black American dialogue that was unfamiliar but did not detract. A solid 4 stars.
